Up way to freakin' early because the Hubby has recurrent training this morning. Gah. And have already gotten in argument with Boy. Whee. :/
I'm looking over the Bunny From Hell fic and wondering if I'm explaining enough in it. Anyone who's read The Velveteen Rabbit knows that the Rabbit actually turns into a real bunny in the end. In this story, Elsie's love for the bunny is enough to awaken him, but not enough to make him Real. And I haven't actually said what the difference is.
And I have one word to play with. Yup, y'all, it's sitting at 999.
*tears hair out*
It's always something. AUGH.
But you know what? I really really like this story. Just a leeetle more tweaking...

I was considering whether to send it to other markets before July 30, because that just seems like an awfully long way away, but looking over the ones that'll pay me as much for it as this one will, none of them have response times I'm comfortable with--other than Heliotrope, and they're closed to subs right now. So I guess, once I finish beating this into shape, I'll just ship it off to AlienSkin and cross my fingers.
They've announced the first round of Honorable Mentions at Writers of the Future. I've not gotten a phone call yet. There's a couple of people from Utah on the list. *bites nails*
